The weekend before this last one, I was up in Northern California, where I was able to take a few pictures at the hotel we stayed at for one night. These photos were taken on my cell phone in a rush, but I’m really glad I decided to take them and show this beautiful area! This is a partially protected area of the coast right next to Monterey, CA. I loved that they had signs showing the different types of flowers and foliage in these protected habitats. I love the way the green looks against the light sand, all while being alongside the beautiful ocean. The waves were massive, and the unpopulated beach was stunning.
